“Resurreection of the Soul at Ally's Guest House during Easter 2013”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

Our evening arrival at Ally's Guest House was punctuated by her sagely advice on staying in Placencia and an introduction to Belikin Beer. Magnificent! Ally is fantastic, and her choice of guests were most compatible (translation: no rowdiness). The accommodations were perfect, the bedroom cozy and comfortable, and the bathroom well appointed and clean. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils. I just wish I hadn't been exploring the local restaurants so much and cooked a little more. Though we didn't entertain, the living room area was the perfect spot to plop down to catch your breath from this breathtaking seaside village. Close to, but far enough away from, the center of town, Ally's Guest House's location is perfect for accessing the beach, the ferry, and all that the town of Placencia has to offer. Access to the two piers on the lagoon was romantic and secluded; just the spot to relax after a day of exploring Placencia by bike or kayak, both provided by Ally free of charge. The pool was inviting as well as the hammock to gently rock you to sleep or enjoy a good book. If security is your concern Buck and Lulu (Ally's dogs) provide it as well as the barred windows and doors. They were never a nuisance, but Ally provides ear plugs if you're not use to dogs. I'm spoiled! I think that I will never stay anywhere else in Placencia unless Ally's Guest House is unavailable, and if that be the case, I think I will just have to change my plans for arrival.

We spent 7 days at Ally's Guest House and were thoroughly impressed from the time of arrival to checkout. Ally was extremely helpful in getting us settled and providing us with lots of useful information about Placencia and the neighboring communities. She made us feel at home from day 1, and our 1-bedroom apartment was fully stocked with everything we needed during our stay. All we had to do was buy a few groceries, and there were several nearby markets.

The guesthouse itself is situated right on the lagoon, which is really a pleasant and picturesque location that offers fabulous views of the water and also privacy that you won't find on the beach. We loved that Ally's guesthouse includes the use of a pool, hammocks, bicycles, a washing machine, etc... basically, it's got everything you could want or need. It is clean and quiet, and the location, as well as Ally's dogs, provide security. So you can rest assured knowing that your belongings are safe when you're out partaking of all of the adventure activities that Belize has to offer.

We visited Belize during Easter, which is a time when Belizeans who are living in the U.S. or elsewhere travel home to be with their families, and Placencia becomes home to lots of lively parties. However, the location of the guesthouse put us close enough to experience the action, but far enough to have some peace and quiet at the day's or night's end.

Ally's guesthouse caters to an older clientele so you can expect a relaxed environment. At the same time, Ally is quite outgoing and can direct you to the best of Placencia's nightlife if you crave that sort of entertainment, and Placencia has much to offer in the way of live music, dancing, and related entertainment.

In short, we were more than pleased with our stay at Ally's and would recommend this to all in a heartbeat.

My wife and I were fortunate enough to arrive at Ally's Guest House in Belize on August 6th for the first leg of our most excellent honeymoon. We were greeted by Ally personally at PLJ, where if she were unable to meet us due to rain or just because she is fortunate enough to live in paradise, and enjoy we could have easily gotten a cab with one of the very kind, and cordial taxi drivers. She whisked us away to our spacious apartment type room at her home, where we felt very safe and cozy. The apartment was amazing, everything was there that was needed and more for a comfortable stay in beautiful Belize. I use the term apartment in the sense that the room is more like an apartment because of the size, and accommodations. There was a living room with television, large kitchen with stove, sink, cupboards full of glasses bowls plates’ etc. large refrigerator, dining area, bedroom with television, awesome air conditioning that sometimes is much needed, and a cool bathroom in our place that had a cool large bowl sink and neat layout where you would step up in to the shower and toilet giving it a royal tone. Located just at the end of the strip where a person can get away from the hustle and bustle. Although Placencia is tropical paradise, very pleasant, and relaxing by large city standards, fun is easily found, and being able to get off the main strip 50 yards down a nicely maintained road to a very comfortable air conditioned room, or strolling around the property to the quaint dock and taking a peek out at the lagoon, or taking a dip in the pool is just priceless. Another completely awesome benefit is that Ally has bikes that she loans out; you don’t have to rent them. If you go, get one and cruise around, the terrain is mostly flat and easily peddled by anyone truly more fun than H E double hockey sticks. Ally’s guest house was way more that I had ever expected. I wish I could have stayed at least 3 months if not the rest of my life, and would have were it not for work and life back in the states. My English vocabulary cannot explain the absolute wonderfulness found in Belize, through our gateway at Ally’s guest house. Thank you Ally, Nichole and I are very grateful for the vacation of a lifetime. We hope to see you soon.

We spent two weeks at Ally's Guest House and don't have a single complaint! To be honest, we do know the owners but our review is unbiased. We can truthfully say that Ally's is in a perfect location. Only a short bike ride (bike provided) gets you into town from this quiet, picturesque location on a lagoon. We stayed in the two-bedroom apartment with friends and it didn't feel crowded. We had all we needed: comfortable beds, two bathrooms with showers, fully appointed kitchen, swimming pool, beautifully landscaped grounds, peace and quiet, and gracious hosts. Ally and Mark were very helpful with information about what to see and do. Everything was clean and neat making our stay in beautiful Belize even more perfect. There are lovely smaller apartments available too. Going to Placencia? No decision necessary - stay at Ally's Guest House.

Some of my best memories ever come from Ally's Guest House. Ally understands the concept of hospitality, you feel it every day. The location couldn't be more perfect, close enough to the village but just far enough away for peace and quiet. Wish I was there right now!
